Ok- here goes- after soliciting opinions and doing my reading- here are the winning restaurants for 1 fun week..
Saturday - Muriel's- repeat visit- loved it the first time. Why not enjoy another Saturday night at a restaurant that gets rave reviews.
Sunday - Green Goddess- looks like a fun night- BYOB will help the wallet but they may have drinks by August.
Monday Late dinner at Acme Oyster. after touring the plantations. Guilty pleasure as it is wife's personal favorite.
Tuesday- Abita Restaurant. Getting out of Dodge for a fun day of baseball and beer
Wednesday- Dante's Kitchen- can't wait-killer reviews hope it lives up to the hype.
Thursday- Commander's for lunch. 25 cent martinis make for a late night dinner so Bar UnCommon for late dinner(have to have a drink from Chris)
Please feel free to comment on the "fun"factor or suggestions for options
I think it is a fabulous agenda for a fun week. Consider the Sazerac Bar (it opens the first of July) for a historic NOLA treat. Acme is not my favorite, but as it is your wife it is forgiven. Also try CURE for great cocktails
-Sazarac Bar is absolutely on the list for an afternoon visit.. Cure is a new name. Will have to look for it. Acme is Acme. One of our fiirst NOLA visits 15 years ago. Old friends are great- warts and all.
Coolinary restaurants beginning to appear. 18 are up on the Coolinary site. Hoping Muriel's special is still available although it looked like a very limited event.
